A Timeless God and Savior

Marcel Sanchez - Thursday, September 13, 2012

   In the beginning was the Word. (John 1:1, ESV)

Imagine not having to worry about setting your alarm clock or being on time for your next appointment.  Picture what your life would be like if you lived without any time limitations whatsoever.  What would you do differently if your life were not governed by the laws of time? What new adventures would you plan?  This may be hard to imagine right?

We only have 24 hours each day to get everything done.  We simply have to make the best use of each moment to advance God’s plan of reconciling all men to Himself through Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:9). Now imagine being alive before time, as we know it ever existed.  Think about what would happen if you lived in a perfect environment.  It never aged nor was it governed by time or subject to negative environmental factors.  Can you picture the beauty of such a place?

Prior to His arrival on earth, Jesus lived in such an environment.  Did you know that Jesus Christ is the Eternal Word of God?  God is one, but exists in three distinct persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one (Deuteronomy 6:4, ESV).  They each function in perfect harmony.  The Word of God was the spoken representation of God’s person (John 1:1).

Although a distinct person, Jesus shares His divine attributes with the Father.  While we wait for the blessed hope—the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13, NIV).  Jesus is the exact representation of God Himself (Colossians 1:15-20).  The Holy Spirit also shares within this divine nature.  He exists as a separate person and serves a unique purpose within the divine trinity.

Read:
Open your Bible and read Colossians 1:15-20

Reflect:
Prayerfully consider the following: Why would Jesus be able to hold your life together when multiple challenges arrive without any warning?

List three characteristics regarding the person of Jesus:
1.______________________________ 
2.______________________________ 
3.______________________________

When it comes to allowing God’s Word to rule in every area of your life, which areas do you findyourself still resisting?


Respond: In prayer, ask, “Lord, what do I need to change starting today as a result of these truths?  What action steps should I take?”
